THOSAI ON A HOT PLATE – Three Thosai being cooked on a hot grill / hot plate. A very thin, but large sized pancake of South India: Sometimes it is referred to as a ‘South Indian Pancake.” You can see how flat they are. The dough is kind of formed / spread out / poured – (not sure what the best term is for it) in a circular fashion. It is quite good, but I prefer “chapatti.”

I’ve noticed that quite a few people visit this entry in my photo-journal, so I will, when I find them, add some links to recipes I’ve noticed for Thosai – I hope this helps you find what you need to make some nice Thosai.
Dhosai Recipe (please note: This is where languages can sometime get tricky. In the Malay language, the word “Dosa” means “Sin!” However, I believe a more accurate spelling in addition to “Thosai” would be “Dhosai”, but I’m not the editor of this page for this recipe). They have chosen to spell it “Dosa”.
